The Gluware application suite that includes Device Manager, Config Drift and Audit, OS Manager and Config Modeling provide no-code automation to enable and maintain compliance and enhance security. Now, Network RPA enables defining automated end-to-end processes that ensure policies and procedures are executed manually, scheduled or event-driven providing continuous compliance and improved security posture.
Gluware focuses on real-world network automation capabilities in brownfield environments. In this video, part of the Packet Pushers LiveStream with Gluware from June 28, 2022, Greg Ferro talks with Gluware’s Ernest Lefner about the product’s capabilities, as well as new features including Network Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Gluware Topology.
In this introductory session, Ernest Lefner will provide an overview of Gluware and its intelligent automation platform and solutions. He will also provide insights into the direction the industry is moving, including the current state of NetDevOps and how Gluware is accelerating users on the path to AIOps.
In this session, Michael Haugh will introduce Gluware Network RPA, highlight its integration into the Gluware Intelligent Network Automation Suite, and demonstrate how it adds drag-and-drop process building to develop, test, deploy, run and monitor process automation. The session will also feature a “Standard” N-RPA demo that will showcase the ability to build a workflow using the drag-and-drop interface, test the workflow, then advance it to production. Michael will then perform a production run to highlight Gluware’s workflow monitor and logs.
Tim Silverline will build on the previous session to cover a security use case that includes external integrations, specifically StackStorm API integrations including AWS and Ansible. This session will also feature a demo that shows how Gluware Network RPA integrates programmatically with the ONUG CSNF framework to enable event-based automated security response using programmatic interaction with Network RPA to perform configuration drift and audit on the network along with updating an AWS inbound ACL to block a bad actor as part of the response. An Ansible playbook will be called to perform automated verification.
Michael Haugh presents a use case where a customer needs a custom ServiceNow integration. It will highlight how Gluware Lab can be used to create a custom task that will be published into the user’s Gluware Control instance for use in the Network RPA as a custom task. This session’s demo will showcase a situation where a customer needs a capability, such as API integration with ServiceNow. Mike will demonstrate how Gluware Lab can be used to build the task (a wizard-assisted JNIB), package it in a capsule and install it into the instance. He will then use Network RPA to build a basic workflow using the new task.
ONUG Spring 2022 – Keynote Presentation | Gluware Intelligent Network Automation Accelerates Compliance Initiatives at First Republic Bank
The future of financial services involves staying ahead of risks and enabling new business opportunities. Get insights and best practices from Shane Jenkins, Senior Director, Data Center and Infrastructure Engineering, First Republic Bank, on how he and his teams are using Gluware intelligent network automation to address key priorities including configuration management, vulnerability management, lifecycle management, compliance, enhanced security, lowered operational costs, and more.
Ernest Lefner, Chief Product Officer, Gluware, will review their new product announcement and highlight the path to self-operating networks in an era of rapidly evolving enterprise needs. Lefner will discuss how no-code/low-code NRPA and NetDevOps provides the software ‘glue’ between API interfaces to progress from task-based automation to end-to-end event-based automation along with a demo from Michael Haugh, VP of Product Marketing.
See how NetDevOps is real and achievable using a drag-and-drop, no-code approach to build, test and operate workflows to automate processes in your infrastructure lifecycle management. Gluware provides a suite of no-code applications powered by an intelligent network orchestration engine supporting 30+ vendors along with the ability to integrate 3rd party APIs. In this POC, see how workflows can be built then run, scheduled or triggered for autonomous operations. A featured use case will perform drift detection and config remediation with ServiceNow approval integration and notification.
The Gluware Intelligent Network Automation platform is able to integrate programmatically with the CSNF framework to enable action through automated or manual responses to events. Gluware can provide standard out-of-the-box event remediation including, for example, a config drift detection, config audit, config change, or a more sophisticated response like lockdown or segmentation based on the notification type. In this demonstration, Gluware will showcase a triggered audit and remediation of the network, along with an update to an AWS ACL blocking the bad actors’ IP address.
